is a day that i will never forget. It was just warm enough to go out on the bike so my girlfriend and i decided to take a ride to walmart to get stuff so i can do an oil change on my motorcycle. On the way back we were driving down a main road and i noticed an older lady trying to pull out of a parking lot. She kept on looking to her right side and we were coming up on her left. Then when i was about 20 feet away she started pulling out. I had no chance to stop or swerve out of the way. I locked the back tire and got it to swing a little bit of an angle so we didn't hit head on. My girlfriend went flying over the ladies car, and i managed to jump off the motorcycles before it fell over after impact. All i can remember is quickly looking for my girlfriend to see where she was and luckily there were already a few people already with her and more running towards her. Then i was able to see what happened to me. My right wrist was S shaped in 2 different ways and i felt a drop of blood running down my leg. I had to watch my girlfriend get carried on to the ambulance on a stretcher and all i could think of was the worse possible scenarios. After the wrapped my wrist up they asked if i had any other injuries i told them i had a drop of blood run down my left. when they lifted up my pant leg they freaked out because the motorcycle peg went into the back of my knee, and left a deep wide wound. Its amazing how i didn't feel it. I was walking around fine on it. I figured it was a scratch or something due to the tiny amount of blood. My girlfriend got some road rash on her knee, shoulder and ear and a really bad black eye. So luckily it wasn't as bad as it could of been. Now i have a titanium plate and 8 screws in my wrist and very little movement to it.
